Jordon’s understanding of mental disabilities started very early. His father was a Psychiatrist and he was fortunate to accompany him to work at various hospitals, clinics, etc. Upon enrolling at Pepperdine Graduate School of Education and Psychology, Jordon made his future intentions clear from day one with the clinical training coordinator at Pepperdine. He said he came to increase his knowledge in chronic and severe mental health so he could return to the field more prepared to help. He used his education to continue working at mental health facilities treating chronic mental disorders including schizophrenia, major depressive disorder, generalized anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc.
Jordon was fortunate to have made his mind up that he wanted to be an instrument of recovery for individuals needing mental health services. He used this experience to obtain a license in Marriage and Family Therapy and continue working with adults diagnosed with chronic and persistent mental illness in addition to substance use disorders at D’Amore Healthcare. Upon moving to the Bay Area, he used his experience to assist individuals in community based mental health programs including Fremont Hospital and Crossover Health/Facebook (Menlo Park). He brings over 10 years of experience and counting in the field of chronic and persistent mental illness. Jordon has experience utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, CBTi, mindfulneess, and trauma focused therapy [for children (only accepting trauma cases) and adults]. Jordon continues to advocate for his caseload and assist them in improving their insight, judgment, and symptom awareness to help improve overall daily functioning at home, work/school, and the community.
